Hydra IIC Mercury Analyser – No Hassle Mercury Analysis

  • PDF

altTeledyne Leeman Labs (USA) Hydra IIC Mercury Analyser eliminates the complicated chemistry and hazardous waste associated with conventional mercury techniques. The Hydra IIC is a fully automated turnkey analyser that measures mercury in solid and semi-solid sample matrices directly without any acid digestion (sample preparation).

The system employs the technique of sample combustion (thermal decomposition), mercury concentration via gold amalgamation and detection by cold vapour atomic absorption. The biggest advantage of the Hydra IIC is that no sample preparation is required before analysis.

Monitoring Your Compost Remotely

  • PDF

altTo efficiently compost waste, continuous temperature readings are required from the compost heap or windrow.

Manual data collection and risk of contamination are eliminated using a SureCross Node from Banner Engineering (Belgium), equipped with a dedicated thermocouple probe to automatically monitor the compost temperature.

Flow Injection Offers Flexible and Easy Analysis

  • PDF

altMLE GmbH (Germany) provide a flexible, automated analysis system, developed specifically for water and environmental analysis. It operates with a standard photometric determination method (ISO). The application of flow injection analysis (FIA) allows low reagent consumption, short analysis times and is suitable for large sample throughput (as a multi-channel system, shown in the picture) and also for smaller sample series (single channel system).

Autoanalyser Helps Protect Production Equipment

  • PDF

altAn automated segmented flow analyser, the AA3 from SEAL Analytical (UK), is being used at BASF’s manufacturing facility at Ludwigshafen in Germany, to protect manufacturing equipment from corrosion or chemical attack from potential impurities in demineralised water, boiler feed water and steam condensate.

Roland Bruenn, who has been with BASF since 1986, is responsible for the analysis of process and environmental samples. He says “We take samples continuously, twenty four hours per day, and typically test 30 to 50 samples per day for silica, ammonium and iron. However, the AA3 has the facility to test hundreds of samples per day so we have the ability to increase the work rate if necessary. This work is extremely important for the protection of high value process equipment.”
